The UN Food Systems Summit, held during the UN General Assembly in New York on 23 September, set the stage for global food systems transformation to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030. Over 51,000 people tuned in from 193 countries, all ready to tackle global hunger, climate change and biodiversity loss for true food systems transformation.
Over the past 18 months, the Summit has brought together all UN Member States and constituencies around the world – including thousands of young women and men, food producers, indigenous peoples, civil society, researchers, private sector, and the UN system – to bring about tangible, positive changes to the world’s food systems.
As a people’s summit and a solutions summit, it has recognised that everyone, everywhere must take action and work together to transform the way the world produces, consumes, and thinks about food.

Our call to action!
A multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder approach to nutrition must be front and centre in food systems transformation.
Why? Because we must make use of this historic opportunity for governments, donors, the private sector, UN agencies, and civil society to step up and announce bold commitments to drive progress against the global nutrition targets.
